Or would you call her an exceptionally good liar given the number of lies the woman tells?
Not sure... but either way, the woman is a liar.
Via BuzzFeed, even by the usual standards of America’s most lifelike talking-points robot, this is rote Orwellian spinbabble. I wasn’t watching CNN when it aired but apparently even the anchors found it too egregious to let it pass without comment:
Anderson Cooper's reaction to @dwstweets' CNN performance: "That's an alternate universe."— Jon Ralston (@RalstonFlash) September 5, 2012
And so it is. In less than 60 seconds here, you’ve got four lies. One: She says the language was dropped because platforms are long and things get overlooked. True enough, they are long, but you’re kidding yourself if you think the language on Israel isn’t closely scrutinized. If the platform changed from 2008, it changed for a deliberate reason. Two: She says the platform was amended to reflect Obama’s “personal view,” which is a lie by omission. O’s personal view is what it is, but the administration’s official position on this issue is agnostic. Three: She says there was no discord on the floor. Yeah? Who were all those delegates booing then? And four: She says yes, obviously there were two-thirds in favor of adding the language. Again, eyewitnesses at the scene tell a different story. But then, this is Debbie being Debbie.
Debbie does deceit like no one I've seen.
If you can lie like this with a straight face, time and again, what does it reveal?
I think it reveals that Ms. Wasserman-Schultz needs prayer... serious prayer.
